Invalid Object exception

I am trying to use the jdbc-odbc bridge to access a SQL database. I have created several user tables with a dbo-level user. I am trying to connect to the database with another dbo-level user, but I keep getting an exception trying to access the user tables. It works fine when I retrieve system tables, so I know the connection is okay. I'm assuming this is a SQL server issue. Anyone have clues?

Yes, this sounds like a database issue. If you create a table as one user, that user has to grant permissions for other users to use it. Additionally other users must use the full name for the table which is usually owner_name.table_name or an administrator has to create a synonm for the table so that everyone can access it with just table_name. Consult the documenttations for your database on grants and synonms.

I Hope This Helps
